SnaPatch - Patch Management Software

 

 


SnaPatch is a fantastic addon to everyone that utilises Microsoft’s System Centre Configuration Manager (SCCM) to patch their virtual server fleet.

 

SnaPatch connects and interacts with Microsoft’s SCCMVMware and now Microsoft’s HyperV using Microsoft’s System Centre Virtual Machine Manager (SCVMM). By bridging all these platforms it allows us to remove the inherent risk associated with patching and updating servers. This is achieved by automatically taking snapshots of the virtual server prior to deploying any patches.SnaPatch also connects to your SCCM SQL database to pull vasts amount of information to provide you with the clearest and most up to date picture of your environment. SCCM is a fantastic tool for deploying updates to your Windows fleet, however, it relies on companies and system administrators to have dedicated test environments to determine the possibility of a patch having a detrimental effect on any particular server or application. Even if the patch doesn’t cause any issues within a test environment, that doesn’t necessarily mean it won’t cause an issue in production. The safest and easiest way to remove this risk is to take a snapshot of the virtual server before deploying updates.

SnaPatch removes all of these issues. Everything is automated and scheduled, and runs according to your preferences.

Azure Virtual Machine Scheduler

 

 

Azure Virtual Machine Scheduler

If you need to schedule power on’s or shut downs and avoid being charged while your virtual machines are not being used on Microsoft’s Azure Cloud, Azure Virtual Machine Scheduler (AVMS) is the tool for you.

AVMS automates scheduled startup and shutdown of Azure Virtual Machines and can perform multiple granular power schedules. Simply select the virtual machines you want to power off or shutdown, create a schedule and AVMS will complete this and notify you via email when the job has started and completed as well as detailing which VMs within Azure you have selected. Popular uses for AVMS include Development and Test environments, where work loads are not required outside of business hours, normally with a reoccurring schedule so you can forget about doing this manually.

As an example, simply selecting all your Development and Test Azure VMs to be shut down outside of business hours at 6:00 PM, then start up again 6:00 AM. They will be ready for your Developers when they come in to the office in the morning and you wont be getting billed for services you are not using.
